Three Critical Factors

Positional Ranking By Final Grade

The final grade represents the level of the immediate impact we project a player can make in their first year.

  1. Kenneth Walker MSU III High-End Starter Potential

  2. Breece Hall IAST High-End Starter Potential

  3. Isaiah Spiller TA&M Solid Starter Potential

  4. Zamir White UGA Solid Starter Potential

  5. Rachaad White ASU Solid Starter Potential

Positional Ranking by Ceiling Grade

The ceiling grade projects the highest level of potential we believe a prospect can reach once they have developed their skills at the NFL level. If a player enters the NFL with a developmental grade (1-3 years development) with a ceiling of projected high-end starter, we believe that the prospect has the potential to reach their projected ceiling if in the right situation within 1-3 years. The projected time frame might vary based on a player's final grade and film review.

  1. Kenneth Walker MSU III High-End Starter Potential

  2. Breece Hall IAST High-End Starter Potential

  3. Rachaad White ASU High-End Starter Potential

  4. Isaiah Spiller TA&M round Solid Starter Potential
